I have in my guest room’s closet just pounds and pounds of wool rug yarn. Many many colors, too. I got it cheap earlier last year, and it has been sitting, in various degrees of skein-tangleness, since that time.
The problem that I had was I was expecting a tad bit softer stuff. My experience has been mostly churning out blankies, hats, scarves, and an occasional sweater or sock. But this stuff is too rough, scratchy, and stout for that sort of thing. Well, duh. It’s *rug* yarn after all.
So. Since last year was The Year of Insane Busy-ness (finishing up my doctorate, getting a new job, teaching through the summer break, and being Uberfaculty member at the new campus), I let the “How the heck do I make rugs out of this?” question sit on the back burner.
Until now. Tee-hee-hee!
Can I just say how much I *love* the Internet and folks gracious enough to put up detailed info on their web pages on how to make braided rugs out of rug yarn?
I’ll put up a link soon on the patterns I found. Cheers!
